    Well Verbal.

    I ask, because while on holiday, we were looking for somewhere to eat...

    And we saw a board out the front of a cafe saying "Nachos - $5"...

    So we thought, that sounds good. Went in and ordered... When they came out, they had meat in it. I'm a vegetarian, so I wasn't very happy.

    My mum took it back and they tried to charge her because we didn't ask for vegetarian nachos...



    So. I am asking, because the girl claims ALL nachos have meat in them. My mum worked in a cafe for 10 years, and they didn't have meat in them. Usually they have in their menu, that you can get beef, chicken or bean... But never have I seen them just put the meat in it.




    Anyway - I went and searched traditional nachos - and they don't have meat.

    Different strokes for different folks?

    I've never seen nachos without meat, unless it's just chips and cheese? And those are the el-cheapo gas station style ones. Any good restaurant offers meat, tomatoes, olives, peppers......mmmmmmmmmm nachos :drool:

    Aren't nachos and american thing? Sort of like Chop Suey? I remember reading that they were a happy accident in Texas. Not 100% sure though.

    We like chips, refried beans, spiced ground beef, tomatoes, olives, peppers, onions and a good spicy salsa. Topped with sour cream and chopped green onion stems for color. Keep the Guacamole, never acquired a taste for it. And it's my understanding it's an American dish also. If it weren't for nacho's, what would a Mexican restaurant serve an American? he he BTW, they are almost as good without the beef, just add a little more beans please!

    That's your first apostrophe warning :whip:

    As far as I'm concerned nachos are tortilla crisps with jalapenos and cheese which are grilled to melt the cheese and then served with cold guacamole and sour cream.

    Typical USA to regard it as some kind of "how many things can we put on the pizza" competition :lmao:

    Ground beef? Come on that doesn't work.

    Refried beans are tasty though! BUT not in nachos.
